Today The Wrecks share their illuminating sophomore album ‘Sonder’ via OneRPM
The opener and title track ‘Sonder’ is a pop punk gem, boasting improvised lyrics and hooks for days. It sets the impressive 11 track body of work off on a high, complimented by the accompanying music video, also out today. The video is a colorful snapshot of how truly energetic, and joyous, the band are when they’re in their element, playing live.
Sharing more about the album’s process, vocalist and producer Nick Anderson shares “I wrote this album because I had to. I was slowly and poorly processing a breakup, and for a while there, the breakup was winning.” At some point, though, he says the tables turned and the breakup became everything he needed for the last two years to write music that he was proud of and was true to him as a writer and to the progress of the band. See below for the track list;
4. Don’t Be Scared
8. No Place I’d Rather Be
9. Ugly Side
11. Lone Survivor
On Sonder, there’s not only their distinctive witty, genre-bending tracks “Sonder,” “Don’t Be Scared,” “Unholy,” “Ugly Side,” and “Lone Survivor”, but also their take on mesmerizing alt-rock love/loss ballads “Dystopia,” “Unrequited,” “No Place I’d Rather Be,” “Normal,” and “I Love This Part. Not to mention their latest single release, ahead of the album, “Where Are You Now” which features hotly tipped indie artist girlhouse, who will also be joining them on their US tour alongside Mothe.
Sonder follows the release of the band’s 2016 debut EP We Are The Wrecks which features their debut single “Favorite Liar”, their 2018 Panic Vertigo EP, their 2020 Static EP as well as their 2020 debut LP Infinitely Ordinary.
The Wrecks continue to rack up the massive fan base of over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, who have allowed them to rack up well over 100 million streams in total. As hardworking as they come, The Wrecks have just embarked on a massive 30 date tour across the US including sold out shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland and Boston
Poised for a wide-open road ahead of them, Nick Anderson and The Wrecks continue to charge into the limelight. Not too shabby for a kid from Wellsville, just two hours south of nowhere.
